Hi kitcheners,

In this thread: https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/other-arts/24/holiday-season-starts-today-help-us-photoshop-the-best-kitchen-banner-possible/3811/
we were creating a new Forum Header Banner image for the holidays.
We liked the entry of @MrBouzouki (the earth with music notes), but it was not season specific. So I combined it with out famous kitchen fork, that was this one:



and this will be our new 2018 look:



That looks awesome imo! Thanks you @MrBouzouki for helping us out!

Cheers!
:mart:

Yeah, definitely crisper = nice cooking!  ::thumb::
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!

Looks very professional! How was this made?

Thanks @oorlab ! This was made by combining our familiar banner (the kitchen fork) and the one @MrBouzouki made (Planet earth with music notes). In the 1st post you can see a link to Pete's work. Just basic photoshopping, put the new one in a layer behind the fork. Decreased the opacity of the fork 30% and added a burn effect to the new 'Planet earth with music notes' to burn through the foreground.

Cheers all and is often the case with creative stuff you can cook up a tasty recipe by combining ideas.

@Mar T.  - I will try to find 'the first post'. How was the planet made? Or is that the burning effect.

It's my computer desktop image at present @oorlab :-)

It's a NASA wallpaper so it really is the earth from space.
